Conservation Authorities

Conservation Authorities (CAs) are responsible for the management of all water and land-based resources in each watershed. Burnside has a very keen understanding of the needs of CAs, honed through our work in getting their approval for land and infrastructure development, and working directly for them to help meet their conservation goals.
